  1. I almost finished the Bismarck at 1/200 from Trumpeter, it's a big job, started in january 2019. It's was my first plastic ship model tu build since 1975.. Here are some pictures of the assembly progress. For the occasion, I bought two PE improvement kits, MK1 and Eduard. I took the best of the 2 kits. I bought the wooden deck to USA. I have used the probable scheme of the 24 may 1941: Began by the Arado 196 A3 plane. It's small.. I cut the win
  2. Well not really! It’s actually Eastern Airlines 5th TriStar that was used for the 1972 summer world tour by the Lockheed Aircraft Company of California. The aircraft came to the U.K. to be demonstrated to the two British customers for the TriStar- Courtline Aviation, and BEA. Arriving at Luton airport the headquarters of Courtline, 305 was adorned with Court titles and logos in preparation for promo flights around various U.K. airports, ending with a flight to Palma, on the island of Mallorca-a typical destination for the airline. The next stop for 305 would be a short hop down to London Heath
  3. I'm not sure if this can fall under the category of scale modelling in the forum since technically this wasn't built from a kit, but I figure it uses the same subset of skills to do. The Airbus A330-300 is a twin-aisle airliner designed and built by Airbus. Having first flown in 1992 and developed in parallel with the longer-range Airbus A340, the A330 is a prominent aircraft model in the widebody short-to-long-haul market, and has recently been updated with a successor model, the A330neo. This model depicts an A330-300 of Cathay Pacific Airways, registration B-HLV, in
  4. Hi all. My entry for this GB will be my second Nordic build of the year - my first being a Finnish Il-28 in the Nordic GB. I'm planning to represent each of the five Nordic countries over the course of 2020 and this time it's Norway's turn! I'm therefore going to build an Arado Ar,196 float plane, that was briefly operated (for just 11 days to be precise), by the Royal Norwegian Navy Air Service. As many of you will know, the Ar.196 was standard issue for larger German warships during WWII and sure enough, my Norwegian plane actually started its career aboard t
  5. Evening all. With my KUTA Hampden finally finished, it's time to drag another victim to the workbench - one that I was hoping to build as part of @Giorgio N 's Yanks Abroad GB I've built a few 1/200 scale airliners over the years, but this will be my first Hasegawa DC-9. I'm not expecting too many problems, so to add a bit of 'interest' I've decided to build the kit as a Yugoslav Airlines (JAT) aircraft. Unfortunately, JAT operated DC-9-30 variants whereas the kit represents the longer -40. Apparently, it's an easy conversion if you own a saw
  6. Hi Everybody! Seasons greetings to All! New Year,New project, first on the Martime Build Forum. I've been modelling for a good while,but this is My first major warship build,and My first intensive use of photo etch,and I would like to share the step-by step triumphs and tribulations in a full build log to show My attempts and welcome constructive remarks on. First step is to constuct a base to work on the model,that will be the eventual core of the display case. Mounting hardware consists of metal pedestals,spacers,bolts and captive nuts (to allow the mod
  7. I discovered The Sopranos just a few years ago and got hooked on the box set. One of the iconic features of the series is its opening title sequence, which shows Tony Soprano driving home through the suburbs of New York. At about 40 seconds in, there's a fleeting glimpse of an Amercian Airlines Boeing 727-200 climbing out of Newark Airport. Every time I see this (and it's been dozens of times), I think 'how cool' . So I've decided to make this aircraft the subject of my GB entry - built 'wheels up' of course! I'll be using a 1/200 scal
  8. This is my first completion in almost two years; a 1/200 China Airlines Hasegawa 747-400 for a friend at work who has started a collection. He wanted a ready built one (like the MD-11 and 767 in the background) but couldn't find one, so I volunteered to build it for him. I couldn't find any transfers for a China Airlines 747 so used some made for an MD-11 for the lettering and masked the stripes and markings myself. The windows have been filled with crystal clear and maybe a shade or two have been closed by sleepy passengers using plasticard glued from the inside.
  9. With my 1/144 Vulcan B1a conversion nearing the point where it will be painted, I'm looking for decals. I've decided on an antiflash scheme, although I'm not too bothered by which specific airframe as long as I can find pictures of it. I can't find any decal sets for anti flash roundels (54" and 84"), fin flashes (24" x 36") or serials (18") in 1/144. The B1a didn't have underwing serials so I don't need to worry about them. While I'm at it, does anyone know of any good sources for 1/200 decals for Vulcan B2s, antiflash and camouflaged. I'm thinking of building a number of the Dragon
  10. Taking a little break from my current Hornet builds (in various stages of completion), I decided to try a quick build of something different for me. (Apologies for the camera phone pics in advance) I recently picked up a 1/200 Airliner kit. And when I popped open the box, found a bonus set of decals that peeked my interest. The kit went together fairly easily. Doing a quick search on the web showed most airline builders fill the windows and use decals instead so that's the way I went. Allowing for putty drying time and sanding, paint w
  11. This one is a 'What If' and just for fun. Intended really to put a smile on the faces of the true wide body tri-jet fans that loved the DC-10 series. Had she been kept by the airline, from this..... to possibly this (albeit a very tired and old aircraft and probably only good for dog food tins now), I bring you G-MULL Rock on the old days of cheap bucket seats. Pack 'em in at Gatwick and ship the family straight over to Florida !
  12. An all-time original from Hasegawa's original Love Liner 200 1/200 Civil Aircraft range back from 1980 - the British Airways 737 200 (Super). The kit first hit the shelves in 1980 ahead of BA putting their fleet into the skies in the December of 1981. This is the registration of the carriers very first delivery from Boeing's 737 production line. Perhaps not built so well as some of my previous 1/200 civil builds, but intended to compliment the Negus & Negus L1011 I recently knocked out from the same range and scale, The decals were not as forgiving with their age as
  13. Here is my finished Boeing 767-200 in 1/200 made from the original Hasegawa American Airlines boxed variant that for those that can remember them, the series went on and fell off the back end of the original Hasegawa Love Liner200 Series. If my memory serves me as well as I hope it does, Hasegawa were quick off the mark to model their original 767 kit when Boeing first released the same. I've got some of the ANA, JAL and Delta original kits but their decals are now pretty much throw-aways as these old 1/200 kits seem to have only ever been stored in damp garages or attic's by their original ow
  14. The original kit is the old Hasegawa 1/200 American Airlines 767-200 kit from the 1990's. Bought for £8 from my local model shop in West Drayton (Aviation Hobbies) a few months ago, I have saved this in time for my Farnborough IPMS club's February Antipodean competition next month. Appropriately, I purchased the intended Qantas decals from Australia which only took 2 weeks to arrive by post - and they are the genuine down-under "ROO-DECAL" product! I think the seller must have been having a clear out as I received 3 sets of decals for the price of the advertised single set.
  15. ANA invited elementary and Junior school children to design a theme to celebrate ANA carrying their 500th Millionth customers (that's a big milestone number) which was won by Ms Yukie Ogaki from North Tokyo. Her winning theme represented a large Blue Whale as the main theme with several fish and other aquatic creatures swimming alongside. The livery was a one-off them and flew from 1993 on ANA's domestic routes with a capacity of 570 passengers fully loaded. Now over 25 years old, the decals for this kit proved virtually unusable which resulted in the majority of the kit being pain
  16. This is the 2012 edition of Hasegawa's 1/200 A320 which was released in the Japanese Peach Air carriers livery - I purchased Draw Decals 1/200 easyJet decals new release of the airline's 200th A320 delivery celebration colour scheme in an overall orange paint scheme. With all the outstanding Japanese engineering, the kit went together without any issue and the digital silk decals were a delight to work with, The kit is almost complete so this is pretty much a complete A-Z run through of a WIP for you here, needing only a final coat of gloss clear coating tonight. ******
  17. Between my renovation projects and other builds, I decided to do something easy. Hasegawas 1/200 LoveLiners are a perfect diversion from nerve shredding projects... Built straight out of the box,Hasegawa's Boeing 727 kit is still one of the best ones there is. Despite being in the tiny 1/200 scale, its probably the most accurate representation of this famous classic that is available as a plastic moulded kit. The fit is also perfect and adds for a fun and quick build. Painted with Revell and Testors enamels. Hope you like it
  18. Hasegawas LoveLiner Series was quite popular back in the 80s and 90s and they still are today. Sadly Hasegawa has limited their range significantly with only a few airliners remain. The older ones,such as the Airbus A300 have become collector's items and some LL200 airliners change hands a rather silly prices. My stash of Hasegawa airliners grew a lot when I was able to obtain many of those from a colletor who was selling his stocks. Among those kits were a bigger number of A300s,two of which came now off the assambly line. The Thai Airways version is st
  19. Hi All, I'm taking a bit of a break from my Thunderbirds project to work on a new game I just received in the mail (ordered last September)! I now have as the titles says 27 very small aircraft to paint, and this is a scale unlike anything I have ever attempted before. I began by giving them all a nice hot bath as some of the aircraft had slightly misshapen wings. The soak soon sorted that with very little effort. I took the opportunity to give them a ll a bit of a wash as well, to make sure there was no residual mould release agent or other chemicals. Once
  20. My recently finished builds are mostly Hasegawa 1/200 kits,and these are the first that came off the assembly line. This was one of Hasegawa's 2in1 kit releases and offers to build 3 ANA versions to be build,although you have to decide which one of the Triton Blue version you want to build. The bare metal underbelly or the all grey underbelly, like the TriStar was before retirement in 1995. I opted for the very first TriStar in the "Mohican" scheme as they were delivered in 1973 and the "Triton Blue" last flight livery with the all grey underbelly As for all H
  21. The last of the Hasegawa bunch off my production line for the moment... This 747 sat on the shelf of doom very long.Actually planned as British Caledonian 747-200 with General Electric engines,it ended up back in the box when I realized that the Caledonian decals were impossible to apply. A few months ago I found the nice Liveries Unlimited decal set for the Air China 747 fleet,so I decided to save the Jumbo and redo it as a Cargo 747. In my spare part box I had a complete set of Pratt&Whitney engines and so the project was on. I repainted the fuselage and put al
  22. I've been struggling with motivation lately so I thought I'd try something different......... I've long been inspired by the work Bob Wilson aka ShipbuilderMN Latest post http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235016920-berwick-law-steel-barque/ Plus Ray S & now Murdo entering the arena I have long had it in my mind to build a series of British Coastal Trading/Fishing craft. Being realistic I'm not going to live long enough to build in what I would normally call a reasonable scale. At this stage I've also got it in my head that I want to
  23. This was a sideproject that I had built on and off between other builds for over a year. The Hasegawa LL200 airliner series contained many popular airliners such as the Boeing 747 in almost every version,DC-10,MD-11,DC-9 and among many others,the Boeing 767. Sadly,most of these airliners from this famous series are no longer produced by Hasegawa and also the 767-200 is unlikely to appear again as Hasegawa modified the molds for the 767-300 which is still available. These models are very accurate and easy to build and in their 1/200 scale also not too big and vitrine frien
  24. My entry for the group build is going to be an OOB build of the Cyber-Hobby's Vulcan based at RAF Scampton in 1970 and here are the box and contents shots. I am looking forward to starting this soon and I hope that this will be the build that lifts the modelling mojo. I should have done this earlier, but I will check references to make sure that the subject falls within the scope of the group build.
  25. Avro Vulcan B.2 Scampton Wing 1970's This is the 1/200 CyberHobby 'Blue Steel' boxing of the Vulcan B.2, recently completed for the 70's NATO v Warsaw Pact Group Build. There was a small amount of scratch building to make some bomb bay doors to turn it back from Blue Steel to a Free Fall B.2, but apart from that it was built OOB. I hope that you like it. This was the conversion work carried out to switch back to a more conventional role. And a final shot to give some idea of the size
